    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Christine and the Queens' newest album, by hypermasculine persona Redcar, feels more polished, produced and powerful than previous records
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   All Music

    By not forcing Redcar's music into a pop template when it doesn't fit, the album reaffirms him as a resolutely independent artist and makes another fine addition to a nearly flawless discography

  7. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    While the French artist has introduced a new persona and perspective on Redcar les adorables étoiles (prologue), his ability to produce truly unique moments of pop power remains

    An easy record to enjoy, but a difficult one to fully evaluate, it presents an artist pursuing  vital sense of personal and aesthetic freedom

  13. 6.0 |   musicOMH

    This lateral progression in their artistry represents a new identity and a more lo-fi sonic approach

  14. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Even with the bright flickers of Kate Bush-like experimentation and excellent Depeche Mode disco, though, these songs tend to lack the high-definition of 2018's Chris, their earnestly fixed intensity never quite catching from pop smoulder to earth-scorching flame. Print edition only

  15. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Breakup songs and wistful melodies pepper this uneven new release from Héloïse Letissier, who wrote and recorded it over just two weeks
